This is from the Standard Course Book of HSK5, chapter 26. What is the meaning of 却 here?
却(?)可以(can)使(let)我们(us)不会(will not)在(in)错误的(wrong)道路(path or road)上(in)走得(go or walk)太(very)远(far or distantly).
Everything makes sense to me, apart from 却. All its classical meanings, such as but, yet, however, while, nevertheless, even though etc., do not make sense to me. Any help?
